Supreme Court dismisses Arizona case against electronic voting

The court on Monday dismissed former Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake’s lawsuit against the Arizona secretary of state and other state and local officials over the use of electronic voting machines. It listed the case among many others it was also refusing to hear without comment.

What was this case about? Lake and former Arizona state Rep. Mark Finchem, R-Tucson, had appealed to the court in 2022, alleging that using the voting machines created election security risks. They argued that the machines violated the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution by abridging the rights of candidates and voters to a fair and accurate election. The 9th  U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in October 2023 to affirm a lower court’s dismissal of the case and wrote that Lake and Finchem’s claims only speculated about the machines adversely affecting future elections.
